September 17th is designated as Constitution Day (or Citizenship Day) to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution in Philadelphia on this day in 1787.
To help celebrate Constitution Day, teachers now have an interactive tool available to delve into the meaning and relevance of the U.S.Constitution. The Interactive Constitution app and online resource also includes a digital resource for compartive analysis of our rights to those of other nations.
According to the creators, "For each provision of the Constitution, scholars of different perspectives discuss what they agree upon, and what they disagree about. These experts were selected with the guidance of leaders of two prominent constitutional law organizations—The American Constitution Society and The Federalist Society."
The site also offers a compartive analysis of the rights established in the U.S. Constitution to the rights and limitations established by other nations around the world. Click below to access the resource online.
The National Constitution Center is in Philadelphia and a must-see attraction. For information about a school trip to Philadelphia or other cities along the historic East Coast, please Browse Our Tours.
